There are certain tendencies in Latin American Football that have become epidemic. Where the game south of the Rio Grande down to the land of DAM once was a game of beauty it is now a game of flopping, flailing, stalling, and whining.

Bad referees fall for it, and in some ways by truly failing to punish it create a tacit rewards system.

But ... bad reffing does not cause crosses to float to nowhere, shots to go high over the bar, or passes to go to no one.
